First report on the occurrence of Rickettsia slovaca and Rickettsia raoultii in Dermacentor silvarum in China
This study has reported the occurrence ofRickettsia raoultii and Rickettsia slovaca in Xinjiang Autonomous Region of China and suggests that Dermacentor silvarum could be involved in the transmission of rickettsial agents in China.
RPS8—a New Informative DNA Marker for Phylogeny of Babesia and Theileria Parasites in China
More samples are needed to verify the usefulness of the RPS8 (coding and non-coding regions) gene as a marker for the phylogenetic position and detection of most Babesia and Theileria species, particularly for some closely related species.
Characterization of acid phosphatase from the tick Haemaphysalis longicornis.
Discrimination between Haemaphysalis longicornis and H. qinghaiensis based on the partial 16S rDNA and the second internal transcribed spacer (ITS-2)
A PCR-linked restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) approach was developed for their unequivocal differentiation based on ITS-2 rDNA, which provides the foundation for further studies on ticks in China and has implications for studying the population genetic structure of the ticks and for identification and differentiation of closely related ticks.
First report on the occurrence of Theileria sp. OT3 in China.
Abnormal Development of Haemaphysalis qinghaiensis (Acari: Ixodidae)
The tick had a heart-shaped body with partial twinning of the posterior region (with two anal orifices and two genital grooves) and the first report of teratological changes in H. qinghaiensis is reported.
Dermacentor everestianus Hirst, 1926 (Acari: Ixodidae): phylogenetic status inferred from molecular characteristics
The sequences of mitochondrial 16S ribosomal DNA (rDNA) and cox1 fragments showed 99.3–100 % identity within D.everestianus individuals, indicating that the genus Dermacentor was at least composed of two lineages.
